SLAP Observer --- TMB130SS, SV102V(LOMO Lens), SV80ED Deluxe "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." -- Edmund Burke. "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." -- George Orwell "The measure of a man’s greatness is not determined by what he accomplishes for himself, but by what he accomplishes for others.” -- Some Bald Guy
“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
